   Are You Drinking or Are You Driving? This is NOT the Time for an Option Play says Placerville Police Department.

The Placerville Police Department plans saturation patrols for Super Bowl Sunday.

The Super Bowl is America’s most watched national sporting event. On Super Bowl 50 Sunday, February 7, there will be lots of game day socializing that may include drinking. That’s why the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the California Office of Traffic Safety and law enforcement officials statewide are urging football fans to call the play now: drinking OR driving. If you plan on drinking on Super Bowl Sunday, designate a sober driver to get you home safely.

Placerville Police Department will deploy additional officers on special DUI saturation patrol specifically to stop and arrest drivers showing signs of alcohol or drug impairment during and following the game.

NHTSA’s Fans Don’t Let Fans Drive Drunk campaign encourages people to make plans ahead of time that will prevent them from getting behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking. Driving impaired could result in injury or death for you or others on the road.
